    I had reached out to the team at cescaphe and was responded to within hours by email and was able to schedule a meeting the very next day. Very professional, helpful, sweet, and made me excited to plan my special day

    Absolutely Unparalleled Service + Perfect Wedding Experience!

    My husband and I visited no less than 8 venues before we finally came to see Fairmount Water Works (a Cescaphe venue). I grew up in Philadelphia, so the city held a sentimental value for me, but we were really sold on the service. From the moment we arrived at the venue, we could tell that these were professionals. Cescaphe is a whole team and they guide you through the process from the moment you walk into their offices to the moment you leave the venue on your wedding day! We had such a great experience with each and every member of our team! Rose Olivieri was our first point of contact when we were reviewing our venues. We were so worried that since our wedding was taking place during the Made in America festival, but she was able to actually put me in contact with a couple who got married the year before on the same weekend (with their permission) to put my mind at ease. She didn't feel like she was a "salesman" and honestly with the results I had with Cescaphe, the service speaks for itself. She was attentive, responsive, and professional and really gave us confidence that we would want to host the biggest event of our lives there! Sharon Sivak helped us coordinate our hotel blocks including arranging our visits, deciding how many rooms we needed, and signing the contracts! Kate Kwiecinski was our event coordinator (Danielle Fisher helped us as well at the beginning) both were wonderful! They were reachable by email for any questions I had and provided recommendations for local vendors when we needed! They put us in contact with people to help plan our rehearsal dinner and post-wedding brunch as well as several venues for our after party. As someone who lives in Boston, planning a wedding in Philadelphia wasn't easy and having this team of people help me every step of the way was crucial! Finally, I was introduced to Nikki Dijosie, our Event Manager, and then on our wedding day, we were introduced to Franco, our maitre d, for the evening. I cannot tell you how amazing they were! Nikki fielded all my last minute questions with prompt responses and was able to work around my many re-workings of our tables. She answered the phone even on days when she wasn't working/in the office in the week leading right up to the wedding! She made sure everything was running so smoothly and I didn't even know she was there at the wedding except when I needed her (she was like a fairy godmother!). Franco was incredible, checking on us at every opportunity and he definitely kept us bellies and our glasses full! This brings me to the food, which as I'm sure every review has mentioned, is absolutely incredible. Guests are still telling me over week after the wedding that it was the best wedding that they had ever been to, that they'd never had such great food at a wedding (all of it starting with the cocktail hour and going through dessert)! I had people asking me for recommendations on the caterer during the wedding itself they couldn't believe how amazing it was! This was absolutely a night my husband and I will never forget, and we owe it all to Cescaphe for making it possible!

    Epic Wedding!

    Everyone always says, a great wedding has great food and music. Cescaphe pulls through! We did not use the entertainment company through them but the food and the amount was to die for! EVERYONE still talks about our wedding and the food! You will not regret it. Planning with Cescaphe was also probably the easiest part of our wedding. We actually had a different venue booked 1.5 years before and about 7 months to our wedding we ditched that venue and went to Cescaphe Vie and it was the BEST decision we ever made!
